Creamer dreams of Rio, and will never forget Singapore

"I grew up watching the Olympics and thought it would be so cool to represent my country, but felt very sad because I never had the opportunity. Now that I have the chance, it’s definitely one of my biggest goals, to compete in Rio. So I’m going to work hard, and hopefully I’ll get it." - Women’s world No. 6 Michelle Wie (above) who, like Paula Creamer, is also aiming to make the US Olympic team for 2016

She’s a world famous golf star who everyone knows loves pink.

Starting from the age of 12, she has already won nearly 50 titles and awards combined — both amateur and professional and including the 2005 LPGA Rookie of the Year accolade.

But Paula Creamer displays only two pieces of silverware in her home in Windermere, Florida — the 2010 US Open trophy and the HSBC Women’s Champions crown, which she claimed at Sentosa Golf Club’s Serapong Course last year, after sinking an improbable 75-foot eagle putt to beat Spain’s Azahara Munoz in a play-off.

She obviously cherishes the HSBC Women’s champions prize and it will be no surprise to fans of the game here that she is back to defend her crown.

Only 17, Ko's in a unique space at golf's mountain top

LYDIA KO: The New Zealand golf pro became the youngest world No. 1 last month.

She bops to music by One Direction, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, is hooked on social media, plays apps like Minion Rush and Candy Crush, and panics when she can’t find her iPhone.

She loves dogs, even if she isn’t allowed to keep one because her father and older sister have allergies.

She dreams of getting her driver’s licence and concerned over her looks, she has ditched spectacles for contact lenses and wears her sister’s ankle boots to conceal tan lines.

But, Lydia Ko is not an ordinary teenager.

The 17-year-old is the world’s No. 1 woman golfer and the favourite for this week’s HSBC Women’s Champions at Sentosa Golf Club.

It is rarefied air, very few reach such heights and Ko has got to the top of her sport’s Everest at such a tender age.
